Despite the many benefits associated with digital imaging technologies, the adoption of non- film media for primary diagnostic readings has been slowed by two main factors: insufficient screen resolution to permit reliable viewing of many images and insufficient performance to provide an interactive environment. MegaScan has designed a video subsystem which addresses the image quality needs of the radiology community by providing ultra-high spatial resolution. The display monitor has been the subject of several studies and is now in its second generation design. Engineering improvements have addressed the issues of brightness, dynamic range, and brightness uniformity. The MegaScan display controller contains a multiple memory architecture designed to preserve 12-bit data and yet provide fast image loading, image viewing, and image enhancement performance in a networked computer environment.
